Ferrari’s ultimate expression of an extreme front-engine berlinetta, the new 812 Competizione marks the end of the Ferrari naturally aspirated V-12-engined era, as the marque integrates more hybrid technology to aid acceleration, improve efficiency, and reduce emissions. Originally dubbed by Ferrari as the 812 ‘VS’, the car was designed to epitomise Ferrari’s substantial 70 plus years of experience on the world’s circuits, encapsulating the core of every one of their sports cars to deliver blend of performance, form and functionality. From design to build, Ferrari has created this work of art as a homage to their own history and out of dedication to their most passionate collectors and connoisseurs. Featuring numerous uncompromising engineering solutions to guarantee peerless driving pleasure, there will only ever be 999 cars made.
Underpinning the Competizione is a new independent four-wheel steering system which allows the rear wheels to act independently of each other, rather than in sync. As a track-focused Ferrari design, weight reduction has been a significant aspect to increasing the car’s performance. The Competizione weighs 38kg less than a Superfast, with the powertrain, the body’s carbon fibre front and rear bumpers, rear spoilers, air intakes and running gear all contributing to the weight loss. A 12V lithium-ion battery accompanies the titanium con rods and other engine modifications to reduce weight, allowing the car to achieve 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 2.85s, 0-124mph (0-200km/h) in 7.7s and reach a top speed of 211mph (340km/h).
Alluding to the iconic Ferrari 330 P4, the car’s imposing rear spoiler has been lifted higher, with the tailor-made design used also widening the appearance of the tail look giving the rear greater stance. The extremities of this aerodynamic appendage intersect with the line of the rear wings, highlighting their muscular appearance and referencing iconic their 330 P3/P4 cars. The bodywork rear of the crests is now fluted, accentuating the three-dimensionality and distinctiveness of the car’s flanks. The taillight clusters provide the car with a more aggressive and evocative look.
